Google have announced the dates for their developer conference, Google I/O this week, with the three day conference set to kick off on May 14th in the US.

The event will be streamed ‘in front of a small live audience’ on May 14 in the US, which will be in the early hours of May 15th here in Australia. The conference will begin with the usual Keynote speech where we’ll get an overview of what to expect from Google over the next 12 months.

The focus of Google I/O will become clearer as developer sessions are announced closer to the event, but we expect to see an intense focus on AI, more Android announcements and of course Search, Maps and more.

While Google has previously announced hardware on-stage at I/O, we don’t expect to see more on the Pixel 8a – but we could be in for a surprise. We may also see more on the slate of upcoming rumoured hardware which includes the Pixel Tablet 2, Pixel Watch 3, and maybe even Pixel Buds Pro gen 2. We also expect Google to tease the Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro which should be unveiled in October.

You can find more about Google I/O on their landing page, but we’ll be bringing you all the latest news as it’s announced on May 15th.
